Tillman Auditorium, 7pm

In 90 minutes, Speaking of Sex, tracks six students as they try to untangle the complicated web of sexual miscommunication.

September 16:  Impaired Perceptions

Dina’s Place; 5:00 PM for video presentation and discussion

Lewandowski Gallery; 5:50ish-7:30pm to view Impaired Perceptions exhibit and a reception with light refreshments. 

We will kick off this celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disability Act by bringing IMPAIRED PERCEPTIONS, the photographic exhibition by nationally known author, speaker and photographer Brian Steel. Brian travels the country speaking about ableism and how we define people by their disabilities. If we do not ‘see’ the disability, it must not exist and therefore, they are not credible.  His striking black and white photography will be displayed in Winthrop University’s Lewandowski Galleries and his message is loud and clear that we perceive the limitations of others simply by visual inspection and discount their existence by our inner biases.

Please watch this CNN Interview and view the impact the presentation had at Guilford College.

Contact: Tina Vires.

October 2015

October 1-24: PhotoVoice

Diggs114 facing the lobby; Photographs and summaries will be posted on the windows.  Accessible every day from October 1-24th, during normal DiGiorgio business hours.

The year 2015 marks the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To celebrate we are asking our proud Winthrop students, to participate in the upcoming October PhotoVoice Exhibition as a way to raise awareness of the issues they face on campus each day.  We are using photographs to educate the public, as well as those who have the political power to make change on our campus and in our communities. If a picture is worth a thousand words, we hope these photographs will provide visual evidence to help identify and address issues of accessibility. We are asking students to think about their barriers, take a photo, and submit to us along with where and when the photo was taken and a short summary of why it is an obstacle.  As an example, in a prior exhibit, a student with severe allergies took a photo of her epi pen sitting inside her running shoes.  Her summary explained how she can’t just throw on her shoes and go. She has to be very careful of what she comes in contact with and she must read all food labels before she can grab a snack or lunch. One misstep could lead to anaphylactic shock and possibly death.

 

October 1: PhotoVoice Panel Discussion

Dina's Place; 5 - 7:30

Please join several students as they participate in a panel discussion and discuss their photographs and some obstacles they face on a daily basis. Immediately afterward, light refreshments will be served in the DiGiorgio Lobby until 7:30pm.
